Touted as the first camcorder capable of recording 4K 60p/50p video onto an SD card, the new model leans more to the pro end of the market with a US$3499 price tag and features a Leica Dicomar lens, a new BSI sensor and a four-drive lens system that allows the compact body to house a 20X optical zoom lens. File formats include AVCHD, MOV and MP4, and functions include triple manual rings, two-channel XLR audio input terminals, ND filters and dual SD card slots.

The camera is aimed at professionals and high-end enthusiasts, says Panasonic Australia product manager Samantha Dawson, allowing users to take advantage of 4K as well as other benefits: “For example, for those still working in Full HD, shooting in 4K means that you can crop, create new shots and even stabilise your footage while maintaining Full HD resolution.”
